Bookmaking Extravaganza

August 10, 2020 @ EST 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


Unless otherwise noted, SummerWrite camps are offered as 5-session experiences, Monday – Friday.

Member Price: $185
Deadline to Register: August 7, 5 PM
Instructor: Laura Jackett
Age Group: 8-11

All writers and artists need books to fill with their creations. And sometimes the book, itself, can be an artform. In this workshop, we will explore several unique book constructions, including an Altered Book, an Accordion Book, a Box Book, Exquisite Corpse Book, and a Pocket Book. We’ll learn new techniques, gain new skills, use special materials and beautiful papers for the covers, then draw and write in our new books. We’ll create five new books during this week. Program fee includes all materials.

Scholarships Available
